Added DiffLines:

* TenMinuteRetirement: Rick has noted his hiatus from acting was supposed to be this--take time off for a little while and come back later. Thing is, he found he didn't really miss it that much. As noted above, he'll still do projects; he's just far more selective than he used to be and content to relax.

Added DiffLines:

* ReclusiveArtist: He became most famous for disappearing from acting altogether in the late 90's, refusing most any role offered to him, including vocally reprising Louis in ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame''. His reasons were a combination of desiring to raise his family, CelebrityIsOverrated and not having any creative freedom in his projects.

In 1997, Rick went on hiatus from acting, because he says it's too complicated to raise his kids while he's going everywhere to do movies, that, and later movies from the 90's lacked creativity and made him feel like he was, in his own words, "a marketable entity." Nowadays, he contributes witty articles for the New York Times once in a while and does the occasional voice-over for animated films. In 2005, Rick also released a comedy album entitled ''The Agoraphobic Cowboy'', which draws influence from country music. It got nominated for a GrammyAward, much to his surprise.
